Since my last post, I’ve gotten on track. You can read about my come to Jesus here: Last log entry

I have taken the last 10 days or so off from training. No core work, no walking – only therapy. ART, Graston, NMT, rolling and a LOT of direct trigger point work. I let myself get way off track – I admit it.

I’ll be getting work done 2x a week from here on out to stay on top. PREHAB.

Lately, and around the holiday my diet becomes a struggle and a real issue at times. This has been my focus since last week as it has lacked a lot of effort on my end. Luckily, as long as I stay focused, this wont be an issue.


Normal warm-up which you can read about HERE McGill Big 3

Squat in Inzer Grippers

CONV 2″ block deads

Leg press 4×6

I think the day went well! I haven’t squatted in a few weeks and wanted to test the glute/hip area out with some raw squats and it passed. I didn’t see a reason to load up some weight and put some gear on since I needed to see how the hip is doing. Much progress. Mani hapi teim.

A little tightness but about 85% healthy — and in powerlifting 85% is pretty much healthy at this point!

I’ll be adding gear back this coming week and will be putting some weight on the bar!

Test passed – now time to train.

Brian is a world-class powerlifter with over two decades of elite and pro-level powerlifting under his belt. Coming back from a devastating back injury in 2012 that broke multiple bones and that most experts said he would never recover from, he has returned to the pinnacle of world-class lifting (while 100% pain and symptom-free) and is now dedicated to helping others avoid the same mistakes that he made in the past through private and group coaching in Jacksonville, FL. Brian’s impressive recovery has given him the opportunity to teach and deliver talks to physical therapists, chiropractors, medical doctors, professional strength & conditioning coaches and experts from all facets of sport, on how to avoid injury, while building anti-fragile strength and resilience in athletes.
